    You're falling for propaganda.

    Says the guy who has fallen for the myth of Hamas' benevolence. You'll hopefully forgive my inability to take this line seriously.

    •  lol (0+ / 0-)

      Let's review.

      I am basing my opinion on the actions taken by Hamas, the statements explaining those actions by a Hamas spokesman, which echo the civil disobedient positions of numerous activists throughout history and you base your opinions on baseless innuendo.

      Facts, vs. Innuendo.

      By the way, the annoying "benevolence" nonsense is misrepresenting my position.  It's about making a difficult choice in furtherance of a greater good, not benevolence.

    •  You didn't answer... (0+ / 0-)

      ... so I'll ask again.

      ... Israel has had NO PROBLEM bombing any sites in Gaza at their whim, yet they are impotent to destroy this alleged 4 million dollar compound which holds a Hamas leader, who Israel has given itself permission to assassinate?  That sounds realistic to you?  

      Answer the question.  

      •  Sorry, you usually take three or four comments (0+ / 0-)

        to make one reply, and it's too tedious to track them all.

        For someone who has appointed himself the guardian of strictly fact-based answers, your hypothetical whereby Israel would have destroyed this house because it has destroyed others is as logical as the laughable myth that the Hamas leadership is suffering.

        •  Wow... (0+ / 0-)

          Nice dodge.

          So, Israel has (this is a fact, by the way) given itself permission to bomb in Gaza at will, yet my hypothetical which says they could target the compound of a Hamas official is "laughable"?  Even though they have an official policy where they can target Hamas leaders for assassination (another fact)?  At what point does your lack of rationality become self-evident?

          •  Of course they COULD (0+ / 0-)

            That they may not have doesn't really demonstrate much, other than your own biases (which you swear you don't have).

            Weak sauce, son.

            •  Conversely... (0+ / 0-)

              Your "evidence" suggests that a Hamas official, who is considered a terrorist by Israel and is on a list people targeted for assassination, decides to build a huge mansion out in the open, thus putting a huge bullseye on his back for the entire Israeli military to see plain as day.  Yeah, makes perfect sense.

              More weak sauce?  Or common sense?  Son?  

              I've always wondered if people like you simply turn off your common sense abilities whenever you discuss this topic, or do you lack the ability in all areas of your life?
